THE Clinton Cards shop in Mansfield’s Four Seasons shopping centre is not on the list of stores closing this month.

As previously reported in Chad, the company, which includes the Birthdays chain, has gone into administration.

Almost 3,000 jobs are to be lost after administrators announced 350 of the chain’s 784 UK stores would shut.

It has been announced today (Wednesday) that 44 stores will close before the end of May affecting 300 full and part-time jobs.

In addition to this, there will be 66 redundancies at the company’s head office in Loughton, Essex.

A decision on the remaining stores will be made over the next few weeks.
